Easy Summer Outfits Start With Great Linen Pants

There is a petite linen pant style out there for everyone and every body shape. You can find them in cropped, tapered, and wide leg styles. They can have a zippered waist or a pull-on waist. So this post will round up some of my favorite brands for linen pants.

Why Wear Linen In The Summer

Linen fabric is a natural fabric that has been around for forever. You can read an interesting history of the fabric here and how it dates back over 10,000 years. Linen is made from the flax seed plant so when you are buying 100% linen it is truly a natural fabric. Today many linen pieces are linen blends. So always check your label to see the fabric content.

The blend fabrics are also great for keeping you cool in the summer. It will depend upon the blend. Linen and cotton blends can be quite nice. You also find blends with a little spandex in them. From my experience, the ones with spandex or other man-made materials tend to keep their shape a little better when wearing them.

There are a few reasons that linen is the fabric of summer.

  • It is hypoallergenic and naturally anti-microbial. Great for people with skin allergies.
  • It is highly breathable – absorbs your sweat and dries quickly.
  • It is a sustainable choice.

Petite Linen Pants You Will Love Wearing This Summer

J.Crew Sydney

This is a pant that you can style in so many ways. I wear them casually with a tee or I dress them up with heels and a nice top for dinner out. They are comfortable and hold their shape nicely. They come in three neutral colors.

J.Crew Soleil

These pants just scream vacation vibes every time you put them on. However, I also think they are great pants to have if you don’t like to wear shorts. They are comfortable and cool. Just throw on a T-shirt and some sandals and you are ready to go. I like the straight leg on these pants. That is what makes it a good everyday pant versus just a “vacation pant”, in my opinion.

Boden Hampstead

Boden is one of my favorite stops for linen and all things petite. They always have classic styles that I can wear for years. I have had one of their long-sleeved button-downs for over 5 years and it looks as good as it did when I got it. The Hampstead pants are a great option for an elastic waistband because it is just in the back. Thus, you have a flat, smooth front that is flattering. They are made of a combination of linen and recycled linen and come in multiple colors and patterns. They also come in a shorts version.

Land’s End High Rise Wide Leg

This high-rise wide leg is another great option for anyone who loves a little extra room in the waistband. Or if you are like me it makes it so that you don’t have to have the waist taken in. Yes, it has elastic. These are a great pant to dress up or down because of the classic wide leg style with the single pleat. They are 100% linen and machine washable. Also, they are available in seven great colors for the season.

Boden Westbourne

The Westbourne is one of my favorite styles of trousers to wear in the fall so I know the linen version is good too. They make a great ponte version of it in cooler months. You can see me in them here. The linen version this year is a cropped version of the same trousers. I find them to run true to size. I wear a size 2P.

They are made of a blend of linen and recycled linen and have fully functional pockets. One thing I like about how they deliver the trousers is that the pockets are tacked closed. You don’t have to have them as functioning pockets unless you want to. They are available in several fun colors and patterns.

Ann Taylor

My go to for petite work pants is always Ann Taylor. They did not disappoint with linen pants that are a little more polished this season. So many times they will also have matching blazers or other toppers that will coordinate so that you can complete that professional look. This mid rise straight leg pant is just that. Polished and professional, but yet a fun color for the season. This wide leg pant is also another linen blend pant that a very professional look to it.

Collette Cropped Pant

The Colette pants from Anthropologie are one of my favorite wide leg cropped pants to wear. I have these pants and I wear them with heeled sandals or fashion sneakers. You can do the same with the linen version. They come in over ten patterns and colors. They are a linen blend fabric and have viscose and spandex in them.

Reformation Alex

Reformation is known for its sustainable fashion. They have a great selection of linen pant styles every season. The Alex is a nice relaxed pant for the season that comes in four colors. It can easily be dressed up or down. The leg is not too wide, but not quite a straight leg either. The pants are 100% linen and machine washable.

Aritizia Effortless Pant

These pants are just that effortless. They are a new pant style in my closet this year. I have the Crepette and I am sure the linen is just as good. They are just a different fabric. You can see them on me here and here. You can easily dress them up or down. They are available in six neutral shades. A pant that every woman should try because they are that good.
